There are not much of specialty foods from Sri Aman that I could introduce to you. Anyway, this one is particularly my favorite! The Sri Aman Cha Kueh or foochow called it Cha Kui. It is fried rice cake with eggs and chai po (savoury).
Honestly, this Cha Kueh is the most delicious Cha Kueh I ever ate! No offence, ok? This is my personal point of view. I had tried few Cha Kueh stalls in Kuching, but I never like those Cha Kueh as they were mostly not tasty enough. The way they cook were not thorough hence the aroma couldn't penetrate the rice cakes when they fried it.
But for this Sri Aman Cha Kueh, the cook fried the rice cakes more thoroughly. Therefore when the final food is served to the customers, the taste was really delicious! The aroma spread equally to each and every piece of the rice cakes, that's why it is so yummy!
salty Cha Kueh. The rice cakes were deep fried with oil before they were fried again on a pan with eggs and chai po. The taste? Yummy!!
sweet Cha Kueh. The ingredients are almost the same with the salty one, but the sweet Cha Kueh is fried with sweet soya sauce and the rice cakes were not deep fried before they were cooked on pan.
mix both salty and the sweet one. That will make the Cha Kueh even yummy!!
The price? Normal serving is RM2.50 per plate. But if you wish to order bigger portion, you can go for RM3.50, RM4.00 and RM5.00.
